(something) * (x-5) = x^2 - 25
I need to know that something
let that something be \(y\)
Notice that the right-hand side (after the equal)
can be factorized into
\((x-5)(x+5)\) since it is a difference between two squares.
So now we have
\(y*(x-5)=(x-5)(x+5)\) Divide both sides by \((x-5)\)
that "something" is \((x+5)\).
